Re: running deep water

Bret, Now I've never yet owned an Airboat but from the sound of all this I thimk maybe I'd have to put me on some side boards and also some backboard before I got to the deep stuff. Looks like to me the water is gonna be coming in faster than you can run out from under it unless it's a powerhouse su...

Re: 10% Ethanol

We can thamk all the stooges across the country that make out those little checks to the greenheads every month.

If they can trash 12 Billion ruining the Everglades & 1.7 Billion buying a sugar mill then ruining our fuel shouldn't be

Re: Trophy Buck

Sometimes a fool will meddle with the wrong mans stuff.

Evidently this nerd knew nothing abt the people behind the fence he cut & drove over.

But once he found out he decided being locked up was abt the safest place to be.

He is very lucky indeed. :(

Re: Foot pedal steering

Arch,

So is that the gas pedal I see abt where the right foot rests? = Sharp.

My invision of such a setup was a horizontal swivel plate with rudder pedals that swivel for the gas.

But it appears from what is shown this is a simpler setup.

Thnx for the pic, Gben
